Fishin' Birthday

Wow, it's amazing how many Father's Day entries we had on our last challenge.  So many lucky Dad's out there received some amazing cards yesterday!  Well done ladies!

Now on to our next Cards for Men challenge "Sports plus a Sentiment".  Our sponsor this challenge is Digital Delights!  You will have until Sunday, July 1st to enter for a chance to win their generously donated prize!

I haven't made a shaker card is years and decided it was time to try it again.  I'm not going to say everything went smoothly but in the end it all turned out!

I used Fisherman Casey by Digital Delights and colored him up with my Copic Markers.  For the shaker stuff, I added some micro beads and Mica flakes by Stampin' Up.  I fastened the sentiment with an old-style pin from a clothing tag, added some brads and buttons.

Now hop on over to Cards for Men and look at the fun creations by our Design Team!  Remember, you have two weeks to upload your creation, time to start crafting!

Dad's Weekend

We've had a busy weekend celebrating my hubby's birthday yesterday and Father's Day today.  I helped my boys create some special projects for their dad and here they are!

For his birthday, part of his gift was this plant and bottle of wine.  My youngest colored this adorable image Super Rog by Elephantastic .  I used my Silhouette to cut out the treat hanger then we decorated it and of course, had to add chocolate cause it goes so well with red wine!

My hubby is somewhat of a handyman and can often be seen with his tools and tool belt somewhere around the house.  For Father's Day we created this very cool tool belt for him.  I saw this project while I was browsing thru blogland and knew it was something I had to try! (I'm trying to find the blog that had this project so I can give her credit).

  I used my Silhouette and the boys put the tools together and they each wrote a note on a tag which was placed in the middle pocket.  The sentiment is from Stampfairy.  The picture doesn't show it here but we also added a Tim Horton's gift card for his coffee drinking pleasure.

Happy Father's Day

Welcome to our Happy Father's Day challenge over at Cards for Men!  

That's right, it's that time to start creating something special for your Dad.  You will have until Sunday, June 17th to link up your project for a chance to win a fab prize from our Sponsor. 

I decided to make and Easel card as I haven't done one in a while.  I used dark brown cardstock and matched up some manly paper I had in my stash.

The image is "Three Ties" by Hambo Stamps.  I decided to stitch up the layers and add some buttons along the way.  I also used my iRock tool and fastened studs in place of buttons on the shirt.  I didn't have the right color of stud so I colored them up with my Copics.
